LEED Fundamental Commissioning

The LEED Green Building Rating System is a benchmarking and design assistance tool for building owners, designers and construction professionals. The system recognizes and rewards choices that improve the environmental performance of buildings, while serving as a method to compare buildings of different types and locations. RSR Engineering has extensive experience in managing LEED certified and other energy efficient sustainable design projects. Employees have taken LEED training or are LEED certified, thus are capable, trained and motivated to achieve the requirements and goals of LEED.

The first prerequisite in the Energy and Atmosphere category of LEED is Fundamental Building Systems Commissioning. This prerequisite describes the commissioning tasks that must be completed on all projects that intend to earn any level of LEED certification. The intent of this prerequisite, as stated in the LEED Reference Guide, is to “verify and ensure that fundamental building elements and systems are designed, installed and calibrated to operate as intended.”
